We didn't do any official art last week, so the children just did whatever they fancied doing. DD started an intricate colour-by-numbers that's sat on our shelf for a very long time & Stitch coloured in some wildlife pictures. Minnie sewed (I think), Joel skived and I can't remember what Lilo and TP did! It was chilled and lovely for that fact :D
This week we were in a more Christmassy/wintery mood, especially as it was SO cold that we had to light a fire
A little bit of winter art by the fire was in order!
I printed out a choice of activities from my usual haunt, and this is what we ended up with;
Joel's (unfinished) watercolour snowman
DD (9)'s pencil coloured snowman
Stitch (7)'s pencil coloured snowman, on blue card.
Lilo (11)'s painted snowman
My chalk pastel 'soldier' snowman (on blue card)
Abbie's Sticky-note snowman story
In other news Chip has developed a love of cutting just recently. I've never taught him how to use scissors, but last week he just started chopping! He chopped up LOTS of scrap paper into tiny little bits, so this week I thought we might as well direct the activity a little more constructively and see how well he is doing at the same time ~ here's how he did (with very minimal direction from me).
This little man is all about dexterity skills ~ such a contrast to Stitch, but I suspect he will bring me challenges in other ways ;)
